Live music from national acts to locals. Local art in the walls and even some pretty good food. It's a good place to catch a show if your at the corner restaurant or downstairs. I don't like the backroom upstairs, though. The pillars/columns block the stage for maybe a third of the crowd. Besides that, no complaints.
Easy parking in the area which is huge! Decent food and even better event area. Small stage and perfect for more private shows. If you wanna see an artist there you're very close and personal there .
Middle-east downstairs is my favorite venue for shows in Boston hands down and on my top 5 for favorite venues that I've been to across the country (up there with Metro in Chicago, and bottom of the hill in San Francisco). Great space and good audio. Reasonable prices and top-notch location. Worth a visit.
This is such a cool spot! The food is amazing the people are nice and the music is always on point, especially when Different StrokeZ and Asn The Music Man preform on Saturday's! I love the old school 90's live music!
Come for the music, stay inside for the entirety of the show if you're under 21. The artists that this venue attracts are awesome but the security are extremely professional and will not allow you re-entry if you are not 21. For most people this is not an issue, but being 19 years old, it was an moderate inconvenience. That said, the security are also very helpful for those who may be in wheelchairs or have any other physical disabilities that may prevent you from enjoying your night to full potential. Guys, if you have to take a dump, make sure you do it before the show.. none of the stalls in the downstairs venue area have doors.
